any fallout or benefit from hurricane sandy for the candidates? guest: i think it's becoming clear that this has been a plus for president obama. how big, we will see. if you are the incumbents and you're in a tough race, what do you want to do? you want to look presidential. that's a great advantage of incumbency. that is precisely the way he has looked, with the help of his new best friend chris christie. i guess bill clinton will have to step aside. he was the president's new best friend. now it's chris christie. with that bipartisan blessing, the president looks good. for mitt romney, he was pushed off the stage. this storm was a kind of circuit breaker for about three days. momentum, at least according to the romney camp, had been building up for romney. you lose that. politics is not just about the national voter choice. there's a big dial-up emotions included in this. i think the air went out of the balloon to a certain degree for romney during those three days. does he have time to regen? of course. we are back in the campaign today and will be back at a fever pitch by mond

of hurricane sandy and it has disproportionately affected the philadelphia area, which is what democrats need to turn out to do well on election day. pennsylvania is not that far afield for republicans right now and if somehow they were able to win that state, you would be talking about president mitt romney. that is my one big surprise. i also think you should look at the senate race in the state because bob casey has been looking a little bit weaker than expected. tom smith is a businessman, former democrat running for the seat, who has been pulling within a few points in recent weeks. so, on the senate front that is the upset special we are looking at right now. >> tonight, watch election coverage on c-span with president obama from his headquarters in chicago and mitt romney from his headquarters -- plus key senate and house of victory and concession speeches from across the country. and throughout the night, your reaction by phone, e-mail, facebook and twitter. live coverage starts at 8:00 eastern on c-span, c-span radio and c-span.org where you can also access interactive maps. find upd

as likely voters. host: as he had been doing these polls, was hurricane sandy is a prize? caller: it certainly was an october surprise. it had an effect on this election. what we found from the poll is that about 7 in 10 voters approved the president's handling of the hurricane. that would be republicans and democrats. only about 15% disapproved. unlike the heavy criticism that president bush got for his handling of katrina, this became a very different situation. what has happened here, i think, are a combination of things. people saw the president at work. they saw him essentially being a good steward in a time of serious crisis. they saw the ability for him to reach across the aisle and to work with the republican governor, chris christie, the governor of new jersey. the third thing i think that came out of all of this is the sense that government has a role to play. and that in all three of those instances, good policy and good professional work probably was very good politics for the president. having said that, it is important to know that the change we have seen in our own
